In keeping with Jamaica’s Ministry Of Education’s mandate to incorporate Art in primary schools – STEAM, students of Allman Town Primary did several projects of art and craft in 2017. Steam is the curriculum based on the blend of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics.

Allman Town Primary 2017 Grade 6 students work enthustiastically on their designs, thoughts and tiles.
Students of Allman Town Primary Grade Six work hard on tiles for upcoming art and craft exhibition on July 3rd, 2017.

The last artefact – designed tiles and said craft items were on display on July 3 in the canteen where the tiles will be used to adorn the walls. The design on the tiles reflected lessons learnt and the personal motto of the students. The students worked on them just after GSAT and just in time for the exhibition, July 3rd, 2017, a day before their own graduation.

The tile project was guided mostly by Mrs Nadine Bonner – Williams, grade 6 teacher of Allman Town Primary, and the OAaSIS International Anthea McGibbon . Other teachers assisting were Mr Toyan McLean, Mrs Cadena Lumsden-Walcott, Thamar Russell-Brown.

Thanks for a great team effort and initiative by our grade 6 teachers. Numerous artistic expressions, linguistics, technical and vocational activities were executed following the sitting of the GSAT. Students were fully engaged while increasing their skill set. Thank you Toyan McLean, Cadena Lumsden-Walcott Thamar Russell-Brown, Nadine Bonner-Williams, Roger Smith, Anthea McGibbon. Thanks to other staff who supported, our students and their parents for making it happen! – Principal

It is hoped that with proper funding, the current and future students of Allman Town will experience a more indepth art programme in response to Jamaica’s Ministry of Education’s mandate to fulfil the STEAM curriculum.
STEAM is the incorporation of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics for the development of Jamaica’s youth and the nation.
